I came across this idea on SpeakerNet News the other day. The suggestion was to put a question like, “I’d like to learn more about ______.” That seems like a pretty simple idea.
When you have an “I’d like to learn more about…” question on your evaluation, recap the responses and send the summary to the meeting planner so s/he knows what the audience wants next time. Then include the topics that you
Ispeak on and includethese in your one-sheet.
Also, add lines to your evaluation that say:
“I would like to receive your free online monthly newsletter,” and
“I would likeinformation regarding your speaking to my genealogy society,”
What impact would that be in targetting who you contacted and what you offered.
And I need to get started on my monthly e-newsletter! How about you?
